The party of Justin Trudeau won the majority of seats in Canada’s federal election on Monday. What does this mean? Well, bye-bye, Steven Harper, for one. And Trudeau needs to choose a cabinet. And this, from The Guardian:
During the campaign Trudeau promised that his first legislation as prime minister will be to raise taxes for the rich and lower them for the middle classes.
Does this mean we can run there when The Donald becomes President?
How far are you from the border?
About 200 miles…give or take…
It’s about a five (give or take) hour drive to Montreal from here. I keep meaning to go back. Love that place. I’ve never been to Toronto and I’ve been nowhere out in western Canada, though I hear it’s beautiful.
I used to go fairly regularly back in the day. Calgary…Cranbrook/Fort Steele…Banff. And Waterton Park.
Went to Vancouver a couple of times. Took the train from Calgary. Best way to see the country.
Back in 2003 I had a chance to move to White Horse in the Yukon when my bosses abandoned Montana for cheaper labor elsewhere. I turned it down. Chilliwack I would have taken, I think. But the Yukon?
Not a regret… but something I always wonder about.
Even the names sound beautiful. I really got to get out more.
